The Last Friday Poetry Group
The Last Friday Poetry Group is not meeting on the Last Friday due to the holidays. Instead we are meeting on the 16th of December at 7pm at the Book Bin bookstore. Our poet will be A. Molotkov. Born in Russia, A. Molotkov moved to the US in 1990 and switched to writing in English in 1993. Published by Kenyon Review, Iowa Review, Cincinnati Review, Tampa Review, Raleigh Review, Cider Press Review, Pif, 2 River and elsewhere, Molotkov is the winner of several short fiction and poetry contests and a 2015 Oregon Literary Fellowship. He co-edits The Inflectionist Review. Molotkov’s translation of a Chekhov story was included by Knopf in their Everyman Series. He plays the Armenian duduk and is better at tennis than most other Portland writers. This event is free and open to all. Don’t forget to bring your poetry to read.
